Bricks by the Bay Call For Presentations
Bricks By The Bay 2011 is looking for any talks, roundtables, and special
activities you would like to see at the Con this year. Going to and putting
on sessions are one of the things that makes a Lego convention fun.
Past talks have included publishing LEGO-related books, Using RCX bricks to
control motorized models, using LEGO Mindstorms in the classroom, among many
Roundtables, or moderated discussions, have included Planning for the NMRA
convention, discussions about publishing BrickJournal, and creating LEGO
Possible ideas include:
- Steampunk LEGO Creations
- An Introduction to LDraw and related programs
- An Introduction to Lego Digital Designer
- Packing models for shipping without breaking
- De-yellowing Bricks
- Lego Plans on eReaders and the iPad
- LEGO at Burning Man
- Building Big – skyscrapers and other large buildings
- Bricklink — An Average Seller’s Perspective
- FIRST LEGO League
- Collecting Rare Elements
- LEGO Pirates Roundtable
- Steam Locomotive Design Techniques
- SNOT techniques
- Half-Plate offsets
- LEGO Universe Roundtable
- Brickwiki – what is it and how you can participate
- NMRA / NTS 2011 Roundtable
- Microscale building
- Sorting & Storing Roundtable
All we need for more talks, roundtables, and activities are ideas and
people to run with them. Projectors and a computer will be available
(although bringing your own laptop ensures compatibility).
Anyone who would like to run a presentation or activity should e-mail
proposals or questions to Paul Sinasohn (singlow AT gmail DOT com---please
mention Bricks By The Bay in the subject).
If possible, please include a possible title, brief description for the
event program, and any time constraints or facility requirements. Events
are typically scheduled to run up to sixty minutes but can be scheduled for
more or less time.
I need proposals by February 6 to have time to prepare the schedule and the
program. Earlier is better.
All presenters must register for the full convention.
Bricks by the Bay is an annual Lego hobbyist convention and exposition in
the Dan Francisco Bay Area. Bricks by the Bay 2011 will take place March 25
– 27, 2011, in the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. For more information or to
